goose and common / common and goose

Interview with Peter Linebaugh: The Magna Carta Manifesto

manuscript basis of human liberty:

magna carta / protection against autocracy & tyranny: habeas corpus, prohibition of torture, trial by jury.

a charter for the forest / subsistence for all: woodland = energy habitat, pharmacopia, pasturage

The law locks up the man or woman
Who steals the goose from off the common
But leaves the greater villain loose
Who steals the common from off the goose.

some principles of the commons
